This is a great story about a young man who, despite his awful lifestyle, finds God’s help and favor. There is a lot of first person narrative in this book. If that bothers you, you might not like it as much as I did. The story is told through the eyes of a fourteen year old boy. This is the first of a series and in my opinion you should read the books in order. I had a chance to Beta read the third book and parts of it were pretty confusing without reading this one first. The author, William Woodall was gracious enough to give me books one and two. I am so glad. This is a refreshing fantasy written with a Christian view. I give it 4 stars. A good read for ages Jr. High and Up.
